It’s taken me a while but I just wanted to say a few words about what a wonderful convention Hi-Ex 2 was! The first one was a hard act to follow, but this year was even better. Graeme Neil Reid summed it up better than I could, but a few of my favourite moments were the Watchmen panel, the Judge Minty fan film, the marvellous Cinebooks, the now traditional saturday night drunken jam comic, and just seeing friends old and new, united by a love of comics. I have to give a special thank you to Vicky and Rich for all their hard work in putting Inverness on the comics map, and organising the best con I’ve ever been to.

See you at Hi-Ex 3!


After a few months break Walter Wilson is back in action with Episode 4 now up at the ROK Comics Website!

A new issue in my series of tiny little comics is now available! It’s called Toilet, and it features plumbing, monsters, negative equity and social exclusion. And monsters. As always it’s FREE! So if you want a copy email me your address and I’ll send you one, or come and say hello at the Thought Bubble event in Leeds in November.

That’s all folks! Thank you to everyone who has been reading The Philadelphia Experiment, I hope you enjoyed it. Don’t worry Mothman will return!

In the next few weeks I will be starting a new comic strip, watch this space and thanks again to you all.


Philadelphia 12

Be here for the final part on Sunday!

The penultimate episode 12 will be here on Sunday! Honest!

If you’re on Facebook, there is now a group for Magic Beans Comics. Started by escaped mental patients, it now has an astonishing SIX members 🙂 There are some comic strips and stuff so have a look if you get time!

Part 11 on Sunday! The devastating conclusion to The Philadelphia Experiment draws close…

Prestonpandemonium 3 was a huge success, we had a great time! My new comic I Cashed A Dead Man’s Pension went down pretty well, and Omnivistacope 4 did too. (There’s a review of OVS4 on Down The Tubes here by the way!)

I got some great comics and books too, like Graeme Neil Reid’s One Last Time, Magda Boreysza’s Toastycats, and Gavin Inglis’s Crap Ghosts. All highly recommended!

Gavin also very kindly gave me a copy of The Cocoanuts, the Marx Brothers first film and the only one I didn’t have. Hence the gratuitous Marx-tastic clip above 🙂

Bargain of the day was getting issue 23 of Groo The Wanderer for 50p, a true classic and the first appearance of those mendicants Pal n Drumm. Sheer joy!

So a big hello and thanks to Graeme, Jeremy, Tom, Bruce, Paul and his adorable son, Kerry, Gavin, Magda and everyone else I saw. And a mega-thanks to Nigel and Jan for putting on such a great event!


Philadelphia 9

Part 10 next sunday!
